Please read: anniyalogam.com closing down

I have decided to host all hackosphere related files in bvibes.com instead of anniyalogam.com as I don't want to pay for two hosting services. So, I have copied all the files, scripts etc from http://www.anniyalogam.com to http://bvibes.com/hackosphere. I wanted to give you all enough time to make the change in your template, so I will keep the current hosting service till the end of this month. All you need to do is goto your template and change any URL starting with http://www.anniyalogam.com/... to http://bvibes.com/hackosphere/... wherever it appears (it won't even take 5 minutes, just do ctrl-F to find and replace). If any of my hacks doesn't work properly after this change, please let me know soon. I want to resolve any issue before the end of this month. Thanks for your understanding!

Update: I plan to retain the domain "anniyalogam.com" but change the name server to point to the new location (I believe I can do this). This is because my hacks are being used in many third-party templates (like those of Protesto) and I don't want to affect the bloggers who don't read my blog regularly. But it's always a good idea for you to make this change now.

Can you check it for me?

Hi ramani,

If you do this, many templates with your hacks inside will not work anymore. There are many bloggers, who don't read your blog and will not aware of this change. I'm using your hacks in my fully hacked templates and there hundreds of blogger who downloaded and installed them without html knowledge. Maybe they have installed it and never come back to my or your site again.

Please think of this again.

Protesto,

You are right. On second thoughts, I think I will retain the domain and change the name servers to point it to http://bvibes.com/hackosphere. This should work right?

Ramani said...

Gman,

Keep using the anniyalogam.com url for now. I will check it soon.

Ramani said...

Gman,

Looks like you already have scriptaculous included in your header for other purposes. That's why it didn't work. Can you try again anow? Please confirm if it works.

Thank you for this information and a quick update too. Yeah, I was worried too to those who are not a regular reader of your blog. They might be disappointed or whatever.

By the way, nice profile pic, he-he. :)

Raquel,

Yes, I really don't want to piss off anybody. So, I will retain both domains (just need to pay once a year) but use one hosting service.

No comments about the pic :)

Cool pic :)

Yeah keeping this domain is a great idea, thanks.

It now works (however, I don't know why I didn't work :-> ).
Thank you very much.

Yeah R, I made the change and now my 1Click notify won't work. Should we stay on anniyalogam until the bug gets worked out? This is where I made the changes:

'http://bvibes.com/hackosphere/scripts/notify.php'
'http://bvibes.com/hackosphere/1clickbutton.png' type='image'

This is the only place I had to change it from anni to bvibes. The rest of the occurences work fine.

StickyKeys Says: said...

Ha! And suddenly the link works! I guess you did some moving around? Or maybe I just refreshed enough times? Ah well, thanks!

Ramani said...

gman,

I did fix something yesterday for you.

skickykeys, I just fixed something so that you won't have any issue anymore.

I had the biggest scare for the past half hour I couldn't figure out why I was getting errors and my peekaboo didn't work.

Then I noticed the .js url, pasted it in and found my way here, changed the path and its all good!

Phew!

Ramani said...

Chris,

My name server change seems to have propagated and there was actually an issue that I fixed just now. I have verified that URLs starting with anniyalogam.com itself work fine. All is well :)

Dear Lord Stanley said...

Everything worked fine for me yesterday, but now the peek-a-boo script is not working.

I already changed the urls to include bvibes.com and it worked fine for a while. Now it doesn't. Is there something going on on your end that has disabled the script?
